“Better than his wife”
Review of The Dairy King

The Dairy King
Ranked #5 of 6 Dessert in Black Mountain
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Great ice cream. Cash only. Order size smaller than you want. Portions are huge. Fun summer drive-in experience. I got a peanut butter artic swirl (their version of a blizzard). Tasted like the real thing and had left over peanut butter at the bottom of cup.

Killwin's was closed, so we found Dairy King and were pleasantly surprised. Great ice cream with numerous choices. Order placed at window and sit in chairs outside. Trains come by just behind the building so kids had a blast watching them while eating their ice cream. Small town feel to this ice cream place and glad we stopped.

This is your old fashioned classic ice cream - like a Dairy Queen but better. Locally owned & operated. They have some indoor seating but most people just walk up and order from the window and sit outside. They have great ice cream - I love the Chocolate Rocket flavor - it's chocolate ice cream with chocolate chunks in it. If you love chocolate - this is awesome.
And Way cheaper than Kilwin's ice cream.

It's just a couple blocks down from main street - easy to find. Look for the big blue neon cone.
Nice folks too!
